About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 Adults Max)
- Shiosai means excitement at the ebb and flow of the tide
- Often translated as: "sound of the waves"
Let the ocean lull you to sleep under a canopy of stars - The ideal get-away for the creative artist or writer – just steps away from Cooks Beach. A simply spectacular house designed by Ralph Matheson with a view from every room.
This two-bedroom, two-bath, home has floor-to-ceiling, glass cornered windows that bring white-water views of the ocean, Cook’s Beach and The Fishrocks into every room. An arched skylight the entire length of the structure fills the home with light and gives new meaning to sleeping under the stars (and the moon) at night.
The master suite offers a full bath and dressing room with walk-in closet and glass block shower. The kitchen features a large breakfast bar, gas-stove, all built-in appliances and imported German cabinets. It opens out to the dining and living rooms allowing for an ideal open entertainment area featuring custom Italian designed furniture. Radiant floor heating provides the ultimate in comfort. A wood-burning fireplace in the sunken living room and a wood-burning stove in the master bedroom provide ambiance and warmth for the cool nights on the coast. A full guest bedroom suite with full-bath on the second level provides personal privacy away from the main floor. The detached office/studio/game room allows space and privacy away from the living quarters while over-looking the ocean and open space. A 2-person hot-tub tucked in a cozy corner of the deck provides an ideal way to watch the moon rise and finish out a day of creative writing, sculpting or painting. A full double garage, enclosed decks and entry complete the package.
1.65 acres in the heart of the “banana belt” located midway between Gualala and Anchor Bay. Within 2 miles of 3 grocery stores, a gym, restaurants, shops and within 15 minutes from the Point Arena movie house. On an island of land between Coast Hwy 1 and Old State Hwy, it offers breathtaking views of Cook’s Beach, Bourn’s Landing and The Fishrocks.
- Shio the extension of waves in Japanese: waves, wave sounds, smell of sea wind
- Sai reminds one of the excitement people feel when they stay with a lover. Or get excited
for something good.
- Therefore, we imagine from Shiosai: beautiful sea, wind, excitement to stay with loved ones

Our home is located to enable a view of the waves crashing onto the beach, yet without the ability of anyone on the beach to see into the home - privacy with fabulous sights and sounds of the ocean....moreless
A two minute walk to a beautiful cove with wide beach where you can sunbathe, read, check out tidal pools, and jump in for a brisk feel of the oh-so-powerful Pacific. Don't ever turn your back on it!...moreless
Panoramic 180 degree view of the Pacific and Fish Rock. Sunsets 360 days of the year. Perfect perch for whale watching and seeing Pelicans and Osprey dive for fish. Or just stare at the horizon....moreless
Within minutes walk to Cook's Beach - a beautiful beach cove. Listen to waves crash onto rocks and echo in caves as you fall asleep each night. Watch whales spout as they migrate north and south during the year. Check out the tidal pools at low tide - star fish, anemone, and more. ...moreless

The Robert Muir Graves links style Sea Ranch golf course is 15 minutes drive away from the house as is the public Sea Ranch coastal trail.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We fell in love with California's northern coastline and Shiosai the moment we saw it - it has been our dream house providing us a zen-like escape! We are busy Silicon Valley executives and this is how we rejuvenate ourselves when we are able to get away to Shiosai. We do love to share our special place and enjoy hearing back from our guests and what they take away from it - welcome!
Why the Owner Chose Gualala, CA, USA:
Gualala means 'where the river meets the ocean' = an American Indian name. An old logging town, and 2 miles from Sea Ranch, Gualala offers the wonders of nature (whale watching, deer, foxes, osprey, vulture buzzards, bobcats) together with other sporting fun (golf, river kayaking, surfing). It is an artist enclave with some very special restaurants (St. Orrs). The friendly and creative residents of Gualala complete the picture. There is nothing more one could ask for!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
An unobstructed white-water view of the Pacific ocean and Cook's beach. Spectacular sunsets. Osprey flying over the house with their daily catch. Spouting whales in the distance. A deer with her babies. A mesmerizing full moon over the water. Millions of stars right over your bed lighting up the night through the barrel skylight which runs through the full length of the home. What one of our guests said 'what every couple in love should experience. . . .'
